You might be inclined to think that that GSA has been languishing around the garage lately feeling unloved. You would be wrong. It has served some long distance commuting duties, a business trip to Massachusetts, and some romps into the countryside. It is this chronicle that is lagging behind. On a recent evening, the excuse to ride was to find a fort that had been mentioned to me by another rider. The name is Fort Roberdeau, and it was built to protect lead mines and smelting operations toward the end of the war for Independence. Today, it is a historic site with tours, events, and re-enactments.
The fort is a bit off the beaten path, and nice roads surround it. I arrived after closing time, so it just served as an excuse to explore. The GSA provided a nice contrast of new vs old as it stood in front of the gates of a structure built around 1778.
